Variations Week: Ali's View

I love this fun and funky image by Joanne Schempp - it's just perfect for a St Patrick's Day card:
I went with traditional colours of green and gold/orange for my card. I coloured the image with Promarkers...
...and added some highlights with Stickles:
I carried the colour scheme through into the backing papers, adding gold mirri card for a bit of extra shimmer and shine. I made the greeting on my computer (it's Irish Gaelic for "St Patrick's Day Blessings") and finished things off with some paper flowers, die-cut leaves and beaded stems.
You can buy this great image from the Sweet Pea Stamps store in either red rubber or digi format.
